good evening, i'm ann notarangelo. no deal on the debt limit. the president and congressional leaders met again today at the white house, but there was no apparent progress. jim wrube on why republicans are blaming the president. >> reporter: president obama called congressional leaders back to the white house for a saturday morning meeting. the latest attempt to make progress on the debt ceiling crisis. >> the truth is, neither party is blameless. and both parties have a responsibility to do something about it. every day families are figuring out how to stretch their paychecks. >> reporter: despite having pulled out of talks with administration late friday, house speaker john boehner did attend the saturday meeting and he said he pulled out because mr. obama moved the goal posts at the last minute. >> there was an agreement on some additional revenue, until yesterday when the president demanded $400 billion more, which was going to be nothing more than a tax increase on the american people. >> reporter: speaking on background, the administration denies any goal posts moved and
said boehner was offered a plan that would have brought about 3.5 to $4 trillion in cuts, while raising the debt ceiling. the deadline, august 2, is now about a week and a half away. that's when the government warns it will not be able to meet all of its fiscal obligations. economists warn default could spell disaster for a still fragile american economy. there are reports the republicans may try to sell the white house on two debt ceiling votes, but the president has made it clear that we not agree to any short-term extensions. well, around the bay area, and across the country, people watch and wait for movement in washington. and some took their fear and frustration to a town hall meeting in the east bay. and anne makovec says they had plenty to say. >> well, it is free frustrating. -- very frustrating. they're not being honest with the american people. >> until robin hood shows up, we have politicians trying to hammer out a deal, and the rest
of us waiting for word. >> i'm going to be 62 in august. >> reporter: nervous about the effect on government programs. >> there is a lot of people living on social security and that's all they have. >> i feel as if all of our representatives in congress are essentially addicted to money. and they're not aware of the actual impact on real people of their positions. >> reporter: congressman pete stark held this town hall meet until almeda to -- in almeda to share his concerns and answer others. >> i think people are jockeying for stature, structure, and they are the ones who want to have written, including the president, the definitive answer as to how we're going to solve these budget problems and i don't think there is a definitive answer. >> reporter: even though there is a fair amount of cynicism out there, most people we spoke with were confident that some sort of deal could be reached by august 2. >> i think you will find, as the hours get late, that they're going to compromise on a deal
that may not be everybody's dream. but it should go to reforming government. because otherwise, we're going to be doing this every year for a decade. >> reporter: in almeda, anne makovec, cbs 5. well, it is a refuge for late night coffee lovers but last night some thieves stole more than the peace and quiet. gaylord's cafe on piedmont avenue was the target of a trio of robbers who came for only one thing and didn't leave until an innocent passer-by was shot. don knapp is at gaylord's where the holdup is the talk of the neighborhood. don? >> reporter: and you got to ask yourself, what would you do? you're sitting in gaylord's, sitting on your computer, and some guys come in and pick up the computers and run out the door. would you get up and chase them? well, that's what some of the folks at gaylord's did. there is not normally much excitement in gay -- gay gaylord's piedmont avenue but late friday night, things perked up. >> a cop pulled up to get his
nightly coffee and there was a pop sound. it sounded to me like it was just a cap gun or something. and somebody screamed get down. and everybody hit the floor. >> i was scared. i mean i just heard the gunshot. and the girl pam that i was working with said get down, get down, and we were down behind the counter for a minute and what do we do now? >> this woman says she saw three teenaged boys casing the place when they made their move. >> they seemed a little fishy. they looked a little odd and they walked in and they all of a sudden all three of them grabbed laptops, off of the customer's tables. started running outside. other customers got up and one of them tackled one of the guys. >> reporter: with two laptops and an i-pad in their hand, the teens headed out the door. but with a couple of customers hot on their heels. >> my friend eric, very big man, he ran after them, and he said that in the midst of the scuffle, he had them turned around and he saw that he was pulling out a gun, and that it accidentally, as far as he put
it, fired. >> he could have been shot. >> he is convinced the kid would have shot him but he ended up accidentally firing and hit an innocent bystander on the corner. >> the woman was treated for a bullet graze on her legs but she is okay. >> reporter: we thought gaylord's might not want to think about their customers hit by brazen laptop thieves, but they laughed that off. >> we have been insanely busy today. i don't know if it is a good thing. not a good thing but good for business, anyhow. >> three laptops are still missing. three thieves are still at large. a woman is treated for a gunshot wound in the leg and thieves may think twice about robbing this place and people get up and chase them and cops are regular people here. >> don knapp in oakland, thank you. two teenagers are champed in connection with a shoot -- charged in connection with a shooting that wounded an 11-year-old girl.

that means hot across the interior, we will look for mid to upper 80s to prevail under mostly sunny skies and some cloud cover in the morning and it will clear out early, though and bayside, we will look for mid to upper 70s in the east bay, and on the peninsula and back to the beach. it looks like mid to upper 60s should prevail for the warmer locations as the stratus quo weather pattern continues for tomorrow. with temperatures up a degree or two. nothing dramatic. more of a warmup next weekend. and first we have a weak disturbance out here, bringing cooler air in the region for the beginning of the week. it will continue to maintain the fog bank which will give way to afternoon sun. but overall temperatures will drop through about midweek before we start to warm things back up. as tomorrow's temperatures should look pretty close to, this as we look for a couple of degrees warmer inland. mid to upper 80s there. upper 70s again in the east bay. back to the water, it looks like mid to lowselves and the mid-60s -- low 70s and the mid 60s will prevail at the peninsula. at the beach, a little cooler. where the fog will continue to
linger even through tomorrow afternoon. here you see that cooldown into the beginning of the week. as the weak disturbance passes to our north. and then following that, through the end of the week, and into the weekend, we should head back to near normal, which puts us into the mid to low 90s. look for a warmup due, come next weekend. until then, low clouds, late night and early morning hours. right now, we will head back and check in on sports with kim. >> all right, thanks, jim. the a's try to put an end to the 11-game losing streak against the yankees. and casey kaine goes for quite a ride. the latest on his condition, next in sports. ,, ,,,,,,

but -- fielder in retaliation. but everybody played nice at the all-star game last week and if the giants get back to the world series, they will have fielder to thank for home field advantage. >> 72 rbi's. at the all-star break. we didn't even score that many runs until june. >> drives one left center field. it is up and out to the wall and gone! and the national league has jumped on top 3-1. >> did i ever tell you i like three-run homers. >> yeah, don't we all? >> you get them. i don't. >> the newest giant, jeff keppinger got the first hit in the orange and black last night. a 9th inning single off the closer don ashford. after search seasons in the big leagues, keppinger is finally thrilled to be on a winning team. >> the idea of this game is to win ball games than team was doing it without me. so i don't want to come in and mess that up in any way. i just want to come in and be a part of the team and do whatever i can to help the team.
